Bought it in a lot of classic video games. Atari, Intellivision and Colecovision.

^ Yes.  I don't think that has anything to do with the *Atari* Jaguar.

 

(Have you ever heard someone say "my other car is a Jaguar"?  This post made me think of a new one: "my other Jaguar is a car"!)

I agree that if it were Atari Jaguar, the branding would be better.

But if it's for the car, what is it? Some kind of electronics module?

Can you take a photo of that connector on the left?  

 

If it's something for Jaguar cars, posting in a Jaguar group on Facebook or on a Jaguar forum would probably get you a pretty quick answer.

My guess would be that it's an ECU of some kind, but I'm not a car guy.

Thought so BUT wasn't sure. Here is the connector pic. I think I'll take the 4 screws out and get a pic of the inside.

There's no Atari on that PCB.

That is a car control module of some kind. The wire is likely an antenna to pick up wireless signal, possibly the keyfob. If there is a part number molded anywhere in the casing or printed on the circuit board that'd be your clue to identifying it better.

Thank you all for your responses. I figured that due to the lack of Atari on it it was probably for the vehicle. Oh well thought it might be some odd piece of creator hardware.

I did a Google search and it looks like it's a parking sensor/assist.

I found this in a box of old NES carts. Is this like a prototype for jaguar II, or maybe an auxillary power unit for the Jaguar Duo?x300-60l-v12-engine-jlm11886.jpg

I don't think it's for the Jaguar, as it appears to only be 12-bits.

That depends on the number of valves per cylinder and you shouldn't forget about the other things like the starter motor and accelarator. It might be closer to 64 than you can see in one glance.

Does this one have a 68020 upgrade in it?
